While in New York, Meyers worked as a successful commercial artist and illustrator for publications such as The Saturday Evening Post and True. During this time, he became friends with fellow artist, James Bama. In 1960, Meyers moved his family to Wyoming, where he owned and operated the Circle M Ranch located on the South Fork of the Shoshone River near Cody. Set on the Circle M Ranch, The Littlest Rebel was Meyers' last painting. Guest at the ranch, Frank Hensley posed as the cowboy tasked with guiding the stray calf back to the herd.
